Course summary

Course Overview

The MSc in Health Economics and Policy meets the needs of those wishing to gain a deeper understanding of health economics theory, research and practice, whilst fulfilling their existing responsibilities. The programme is offered part-time and combines innovative distance learning with face-to-face teaching at an annual autumn Academy held in Lancaster.

The programme is suitable for both UK-based and international students. It provides an opportunity for those seeking to enhance their academic knowledge of the discipline and be better qualified for positions in the public sector, pharmaceutical companies or international organisations. Our postgraduate students extend their knowledge beyond a single discipline and possess a wide range of skills to aid employability.

The programme begins with a compulsory three-day Induction Academy in Lancaster followed by modules delivered online. In Year 1 students take two specialist modules that cover the theory and practice of health economics and policy as well as a module on data analysis. Year 2 starts with an optional autumn Academy in Lancaster followed by an online module on systematic literature reviewing and completion of a dissertation.

The Health Economics at Lancaster (HEAL) team has expertise in health economics, health policy and economic evaluation. This expertise is being complemented by the expertise existing in the Economics department at Lancaster University Management School (LUMS).
